Node.js is an innovative, event-driven input/output platform devised for Internet sites which support real-time interaction. A few instances of such sites are web-based browser video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the information exchanged between the Internet site and its visitors in tiny bits, which enhances the speed and the overall performance of the site considerably. When a given form with three boxes should be filled by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one huge hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Thus, much more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared with any conventional system, which can have an immense effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the largest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to take advantage of Node.js with each and every shared hosting package that we are offering, since the event-driven platform is available on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with a couple of clicks. Once you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, you’ll find Node.js in the Upgrades section where you can select the number of instances that you would like to activate. One instance means that one single application will use Node.js and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your hosting account as you need. A new menu will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel shortly afterwards and to start using Node.js, you will need to specify the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to choose whether the connection should pass through the shared IP address of the server or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to stop an instance and to check any given application’s output.
Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to use Node.js for any real-time script-driven web application running in a semi-dedicated server account, as the Node.js platform is offered with all our semi-dedicated server hosting plans and you can enable it with just a couple of mouse clicks. In case you wish to use it for different websites, you can add more instances via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Upgrades section. The activation is as easy as entering the location of your .js file and selecting if the Node.js platform should use a dedicated IP address or any of the physical server’s shared IPs, so you can make use of Node.js even if you’ve got no previous experience with such a software platform. Our system will also allocate a randomly generated port number which will be used to access the .js file for the given application. Hepsia has a simple-to-use interface that will permit you to reboot and to terminate any of your existing instances, to create new ones or to view your applications’ output with just a click.
Node.js in VPS Servers
You can make use of Node.js with each of the Linux VPS web hosting plans offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. The Node.js platform will have its very own section where you can set it up with several mouse clicks even if you have no experience with similar software, since Hepsia is truly intuitive and simple to use. All it takes to add a new Node.js instance is to enter the folder path to the .js file that will use the platform and to select the IP that will be used to access it – a dedicated IP or your Virtual Private Server’s shared IP. A random access port will be assigned automatically too. There won’t be any limit on the number of the sites that can use Node.js simultaneously, so you can use our virtual machines for a lot of sites and enjoy a splendid overall performance. Fast-access menus in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Node.js section will enable you to start, to deactivate or to restart any Node.js instance independently and to check their output.
Node.js in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to order any of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans for your script-powered applications and if you pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will be able to use Node.js at no additional charge, since this event-driven platform is built into our custom-built Control Panel tool. Since our servers are pretty powerful, you’ll enjoy stunning results even if you manage numerous Node.js instances simultaneously. The configuration requires several mouse clicks and the Hepsia Control Panel’s GUI will make it very easy for you to activate a new Node.js instance even if you’ve got little or no previous experience. Defining the .js file path and choosing a dedicated or a shared IP address will be everything that you will need to do yourself and once our system has specified a port to access the .js file, you will be all set. Any of the instances that you’ve created can be rebooted or stopped independently and you will obtain access to an in-depth output log for each of the applications that use the Node.js platform.
